Wireless rear camera

I am wanting to put a rear camera on my fifth wheel for both backing into a site and also being able to monitor traffic that is behind. I want something that is color, with night vision. Could some of you that have camera's give me advise. Thank-you.

The Garmin RV GPS has a option to install a wireless camera. We have considered doing it, but have not as of yet. I have talked to some folks who have installed the camera and they report that it operates reasonably well.

I use a Voyager WVOS511 from rvcams.com


My 5er is 40' long so I moved the antenna using extension cables to the front cap.
Before doing so the monitor would lose signal from the camera.

I have the voyager remote camera on our 33' Wildcat and it works great. We do not have any "drop out" and the camera antenna is in it's original spot-attached directly to the camera. Very happy with this system.

RV Safety Wireless works pretty well but needed their booster kit to avoid signal drop.

Problem with wireless is interference from other signals on the frequency. Have one on my PU.

Thanks for the information. I have narrowed it down to either the Voyager WVOS511, or the Jensen WVOS511 which appears to be the same, but is $50.00 less. Does any one have further information on the Jensen? Thanks again.

If you go out on Google, there are review sites that will give you reviews. I bought a Tdibrothers. Wireless is easy installation but the wires can get in the way. Plug and play, essentially. Lots of YouTube installation videos.

For an RV, I would look at permanent on as opposed to only when the backup lights are on.

That being said, I put a hard-wired unit on my motorhome. See if you can get a hard-wired unit that will allow you to unplug at the same point as your TT hookup. Image is much clearer, powered off of the dash display.

Good luck.

I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers, Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras and the Advent brand of appliances.

The WVOS511 is in fact a Voyager branded product. All of our observation equipment (monitors & cameras) are branded as Voyager. We also make JENSEN audio/video products, including JENSEN in-dash stereo/navigation/observation units for RV's. It would appear this may have lead to some confusion in how the various retailers have listed this system.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our Technical Services dept at 877-845-8750 M-F 8:00AM to 6:00PM EDT and they will be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.

I have a wired Rear View Safety system. It's good stuff. Very well made! No doubt their wireless is as good.
